the healthiest berry.

Researchers have been studying the health benefits of aronia for decades. Here’s a list of research articles to provide you with more information about why this is the healthiest berry on Earth.

Research Articles

ORAC stands for oxygen radical absorbance capacity, a measure of the ability of a food or any other substance to quench oxygen free radicals.

Alzheimer’s Prevention

Neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia can be affected by environmental toxins like insecticides and herbicides. One compound commonly used in herbicides is paraquat (PQ), which has a direct link to neurotoxicity, which can increase risk of neurodegenerative diseases. The polyphenol-rich aronia berry has antioxidant protective effects against PQ neurotoxicity.

Rich in Polyphenols

Several studies have been conducted at research universities throughout the United States and in Poland to understand the benefits of the aronia berry and its antioxidants. Polyphenols are one of the compounds found in aronia that make it such a beneficial fruit. Foods rich in polyphenols are associated with a lower incidence of heart disease, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, psychiatric disorders, and other chronic illnesses. Oxidative stress is thought to play a role in the progression of these diseases, which is why the powerful antioxidants in aronia berries could have a positive effect on preventing and reversing such diseases.

cancer fighting

The cancer-fighting properties in black raspberries are linked to the phytonutrients and antioxidants that are found in aronia berries at higher amounts. A concentration of black raspberry extract was found to inhibit angiogenesis in cancer tumors during an in-lab experiment. More research needs to be conducted before black raspberry or aronia is incorporated into medical treatments, but there seems to be a relationship between the antioxidants and their cancer-fighting properties.

FAQs

What are aronia berries?

Aronia berries are a type of berry that is native to the midwest. They are also known as “chokeberries”, because of their sour taste that can make your mouth pucker. Aronia berries can be eaten raw from the bush, but are also used in jam, wine, syrup, tea, and delicious Truronia juice.

What do they do?

Aronia berries are known as a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins, which have incredible health benefits. Incorporating aronia berries into your daily diet can help lower blood pressure, improve digestion, and reduce inflammation.

Where do your berries come from?

Aronia berries are native to the midwest, so they are right at home at our farm in Hastings, Nebraska. We organically farm our aronia berries to maximize their nutrition and minimize negative impact on the environment.

How do they work?

Aronia berries contain high levels of anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins, along with other antioxidants and vitamins. Anthocyanins are the pigment in berries that give them a dark purple color (which is why dark colored berries like cranberries, blueberries and elderberries are considered healthy). Proanthocyanidins are found in plants, and help the body eliminate free radicals.
